I thought I would use my mac as a stereo hub, with the slick little remote coming in handy. I hooked my Macbook up to my stereo system with a quarter inch adapter in the headphone port of the laptop and into the "Aux in" port on the stereo. I play lots of music through it and it sounds pretty good, although I have noticed that the bass pounds and pops out of the mix a lot... I listen to lots of traditional ska so this is an issue. I thought it might be the cord or the stereo, but it definitely is the Mac's problem, because it happens through the Macbook's speakers. I tried messing with the equalizers on the stereo and the computer as well, but to no avail. Does anyone else notice this issue? I have narrowed it down to the computer, and wonder if there are any fixes... heading off to college soon and don't plan on taking any music not on the computer.
